I agree with Nick Wright – adding Hopkins might actually make the Chiefs worse than they would be without him, all things considered. Could the Chiefs win a Super Bowl with him? Yes. Could the Chiefs win the Super Bowl without him? Yes. Do some of the receivers on the team now have a higher upside than Hopkins? Yes. Will Hopkins realize he is in a place that he needs to sign a 1-year, prove-it contract? Unknown. Would Hopkins play for less money than MVS is getting? I think odds are slim. Is he better than Juju was for us last year? Not according to his historical performance. etc. I’ve already posted about this in detail so I won’t bother people by repeating it but, regardless of the contract $ it might take to sign him, I think the Chiefs will be better off, short term and long term, without him.

Now, if you really want to start something, talk about whether it would be a smart move to trade MVS. He is a competent receiver and I don’t hate him. And his contract is reasonable for the market and who he is: a second-tier WR and a second-tier salary. But I think we have players on the team right now who would be better than he is at his role. And we could use the $9 million to sign a solid, veteran DE. The Chiefs have spent the last few seasons getting younger, better, cheaper – nowhere more than at WR, spending two 2nd-round picks and a third, plus signing free agents. Not giving these guys targets is wasting their early, cheap years. Last year Moore got 33 targets, Toney got 17 targets, James got 0 targets and Rashee Rice got 0 targets. Signing Hopkins and keeping MVS means all those young receivers will split 50 targets between them – and that Hopkins will be mad at only getting 100 targets. I say have faith in the young guys, and Patrick Mahomes.

100% agree, been saying it for awhile now

as for MVS: seen worse, and he’s our “Big Body” buy (until Rashee Rice proves himself at the NFL level
